lol chill pill, man. I agree that Ocon has a problem this season and needs to shape up, but that type of incident has happened plenty of times to other drivers. Safety car periods are odd.

Reading his self-posted comment on that actual tweet, i can't help but see that as his actual thought process.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

Ocon was well inside Perez when contact was made, Perez should have left him room. Perez doesnt have the right to shut the door when Ocon has his nose in the door.

As for the Kill me comment, if they touched wheels instead of front wing to rear wheel, Ocon could have easily ended up in the air like Webber in Valencia a few years back. And going over the pit wall he could have killed himself and others.

It was just a heat of the moment comment.

For me, the 1st incident was a racing incident (no one to blame)

The 2nd one was all Perez. Ocon had the right to run in to the gap, the gap was OPEN when he got there.

That safety car video is a bit odd as he blasts past Magnussen and the Williams in front of Magnussen.
he 100% should have gotten a 'overtaking during the safety car' penalty for that absolute disgraceful and idiotic move, as it also was very dangerous and potentially would have brought an absolute mayhem would he have hit magnussen (imagine the mess and aftermath) or that there could have been marshalls on the track and he could have plowed through them. he paid zero attention. incredibly inappropriate that he had the guts to act like he did. I'm happy he kept his mouth shut during the press interview as he really has zero credibility or authority on commenting on somebody else.
Definitely should have been under investigation at the very least. Im not sure he can be called an idiot for it. All the cars appeared to bolt and floor it, then all it takes is a glance at the display just as the other cars slam on the brakes and that thing can happen.

Mclaren thinks that their chassis is so good that they can win races without even an engine. Power unit's weight is actually slowing them down.

I honestly think they would be faster than F-22 raptor with a Mercedes engine. The chassis is that good, Redbull's doesn't even come close, as we will see next year.

My prediction? Mclaren wins every race in 2018 and destroys the evil Mclaren haters.

Go Mclaren!!!! Go Fernando!!! Go Force!!!

The Red Bull is simply faster, although its hard to compare because of the compromises that were made. But if McLaren wants to win, they have to produce a better chassis anyway. I also don't know about the modes Renault can use in quali. It's certainly a great chassis, when you take in account that the Mercedes customer has 80BHP more.

renault gap from mercedes customers is 20hp ...
